Physical Education (PE)

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. Our curriculum provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. We follow nine core values in PE:

  • Become more determined and demonstrate resilience
  • Understand and demonstrate the importance of respect for others
  • Learn to develop self-control and manage emotions
  • Experience being part of a team and understand their contribution to it
  • Win with pride and lose with grace
  • Learn the importance of practice and preparation
  • Learn how to set realistic goals and work towards achieving them
  • Aspire to improve and challenge themselves
  • Have fun and enjoy themselves

P.E. starts with individual activities aimed at developing personal skills and moves on to co-operative work in small groups and teams. Orchard School provides a balanced programme of games, athletics, gymnastics, dance and outdoor activities. Highly qualified coaches support teachers to Children are encouraged to be active at break and lunchtime and are encouraged to take part in after school clubs and other sporting activities. In order to help them gain the confidence to become competent swimmers, children in Y3 and Y5 also have the opportunity to undertake swimming lessons at Ashby Grammar School.
